Bunnies are Safe Here

Late today, uncharacteristically, Sheba began insistently barking.  I finally went outside to see what was causing all the commotion.

Over in the corner of the yard was a young bunny, munching on grass, calmly ignoring both dogs who were  barking their heads off at it from the deck.  Sunny didn’t see the bunny. He was just barking because Sheba was barking, so he figured he should, too.

Once I came outside, though, Sheba got brave, tore off the deck and chased the bunny into the woods.  What a dog!  😀

I have almost everything packed in the Casita except the refrigerator foods.  Tomorrow I’ll wash the trailer, and we plan to leave for Mississippi Saturday.

Ron will take the truck back to the Chevy dealer again tomorrow to see if they can fix the electrical problems with the 7 pin plug.  After they worked on it last time, the running lights burned very brightly for about an hour, then they all blew.  The bulbs were completely blackened.  Now the new bulbs don’t work at all.  Also, it’s not charging the trailer battery when we tow.  But the brake lights and turn signals work.

Sure hope they can get it right this time!

Baby Bunnies

This isn’t travel related, but I did want to share something that happened last evening.

Ron was outside weeding the raised garden beds.  One had a real thick clump of chickweed in it.  When he pulled the clump up, two tiny bunnies hopped out — about 5″ long each.   They were so fast that at first Ron thought they were mice.  One immediately disappeared from sight.  But then Ron called me to come take a look.  He stood still and pointed at the grass behind a planter.  There sat the other little bunny motionless as a tiny carving.  And where Ron had weeded, a nest lined with rabbit fur was exposed.

I was so afraid the mother would abandon the babies since the nest had been disturbed.  I wanted so badly to pick the little thing up.  I thought briefly of trying to bottle feed him and raise him.  But then I decided to just hope the mother would come back and rescue her babies.  So we left the garden.

Maybe the Mom did return and round them up.  I am afraid to check the nest again. I don’t want to know if she didn’t.

P.S.  The nest was abandoned.  I do hope the Mom relocated her babies.
